No Pie in the Sky: Get Paid up to $1,000 a Day to Make and Eat Pizza

Not to get too cheesy, but this could be the ultimate dream job.

Ooni, an outdoor cookware company, is hiring 10 Pizza Taste Testers.

The company will pay those with the hunger up to $1,000 per day — plus the cost of ingredients.

Ooni says that it’s looking for culinary types — including home cooks — who can work at least two days a month, helping develop and test recipes to use with the company’s portable wood-fired pizza ovens.

Testers will then provide feedback by eating their creations on social media and at live events.

The pay range for the positions is $300 to $1,000, depending on experience, so a gourmet chef will probably go to the top of the pay scale and, you there in your boxer shorts, you get $300. But considering you’re getting paid to eat free pizza, that’s still a lot of dough (ba dum-bump).

Ooni says it will send one of its outdoor pizza ovens (the smaller version retails for $299) to each of its testers, who can work anywhere in the world — at least, anywhere in the world with enough outdoor space for a pizza oven.

Ready to take a bite? Send a 60-second video (no larger than 20MB) explaining why you’d be the perfect pie maker — and tester — to [email protected].

The application period ends Oct. 14, so fire up that camera.
